Cornelius, NC – The 14th Annual Big Day at the Lake on July 21 was a smashing success.  The event, which was founded by Cornelius resident, Dave Yochum with the help of his friends, neighbors, and local businesses, benefits the non-profit Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Central Carolinas.  The purpose is to share a fun and memorable day at the lake with at-risk children.

Freedom Boat Club, located in the Waterstreet Seaport Marina in Cornelius, provided 17 boats with captains for the Big Day at the Lake, including a double decker pontoon boat with slides, an annual favorite.  About 125 children enjoyed fishing, tubing, sliding and swimming.  “This is our sixth year participating in Big Day at the Lake,” says Freedom Boat Club LKN franchise co-owner, Jeff Weir.  “We’re delighted to provide captained boats and make lasting memories for the children who would not normally have the opportunity to enjoy Lake Norman,” he adds.

The day concluded with a picnic and fun activities for more than 600 participants, including the Bigs, Littles and Volunteers, at the Duke Energy Explorium.  Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Central Carolinas serves close to 250 children in North Mecklenburg annually.
